Poll Context: From the Whitewater scandal to Monica Lewinsky to Loretta Lynch, between Bill and Hillary there’s a trail of corruption over 30 years long. But that’s just the way the Clintons roll.
As the New York Post put it,
Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.
It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam.
Monica Lewinsky is a prime example, and Loretta Lynch is the latest. The attorney general’s dumbfounding decision to meet privately with Bill Clinton while the FBI investigates Hillary’s handling of national secrets stained Lynch’s reputation and added to public mistrust of the Justice Department.
